Herbed Turkey Meatballs with Tomato Sauce recipe


This is a yummy dish with meatballs made from turkey and herbs. They are baked in a tasty tomato sauce and topped with cheese. It's a warm meal for dinner and not too hard to make!


2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
600 ml tomato sauce
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
30 g grated Pecorino Romano cheese
200 g white mushrooms, finely chopped
500 g ground turkey
70 g panko breadcrumbs
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
100 g shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp olive oil


Preheat your oven to 200°C (390°F).
In a pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes, cook for another minute.
In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, panko breadcrumbs, sautéed onion and garlic mixture, chopped basil, Pecorino Romano cheese, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
Form the mixture into 16 meatballs and place them in a baking dish.
In a separate saucepan, heat the remaining olive oil over medium heat. Add the tomato sauce and oregano, and simmer for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Pour the tomato sauce over the meatballs in the baking dish. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese on top.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked through and the cheese is bubbly and golden.
Serve hot, garnished with additional basil if desired.
